Fujifilm has joined the pre-Photokina madness to announce a minor update to its alternately-named FinePix S9000/S9500, bumping each iteration a couple of digits to 9100 and 9600. You'll need the numbers to spot the difference, since the cam retains the same body and the same main specs, with 10.7x optical zoom and 9.0 megapixels. The improvements should become apparent once you start shooting with it, however, with a promised quicker operation, better low light performance, increased image sharpness, and a slightly larger 2-inch LCD (up from 1.8-inches on the previous model). Look for it to launch this October (in the U.K. at least) at a yet-to-be-announced price.
